Grand Prismatic Spring Visitors

The ground is fragile at so many of the geothermal features at Yellowstone, that they have built boardwalks for visitors.  The boardwalks are everywhere and make seeing the geysers and steaming pools and other thermal features much easier and safer to see.  Sometimes it gets really busy and there seems to be a person every three feet, during busy times.  I love the silhouettes of the people with the steam behind them.  Notice the very thin terraces formed from minerals in the water coming from the spring, which is on the other side of the boardwalk.  Amazing scene, isn't it?

I like the light on the ripples of water plus the steam behind the people. Neat photo. betsey
